Steelers To Also Workout WR Juaquin Iglesias On Tuesday

The workout for free agent wide receiver Dorin Dickerson has been pushed off until Tuesday and he will be joined by former Bears third-round draft pick Juaquin Iglesias Tuesday morning according to a tweet by Adam Caplan.

Iglesias was the Bears 3rd round pick in the 2009 draft and was active for just one game in 2009. He spent most of the 2010 season on the Bears practice squad, but was was signed off the practice squad by the Minnesota Vikings in preparation for their Week 17 game against the Lions. He was released by the Vikings during the final cutdowns. Iglesias played his college football at Oklahoma

    How about trying out some DBs and O-Linemen!! Areas where we are the weakest!!

  • Interesting. The Steelers moved out of the second round in the 2009 draft, and where able to take Wallace with the 79th pick. 15 picks later, right after the Steelers second pick in the third round, Iglesias was picked up by the Bears. I wonder if he was someone that the Steelers had their eye on, but took a pass because they were able to select Wallace.

    Completely unsupported, baseless thought here, but could the Steelers be looking to trade away one of our WR’s, and these try outs are to pick up a replacement? Does Miami need help at WR?

    Don’t think he’s being looked at for the 53 man roster, but the practice squad. Somewhat similar to Tyler Grisham, but also returns kicks and punts. The more you can do….

    It’s hard to know what’s going on in Kevin Colbert’s mind, but I doubt this is as much of a trade as a trade up. Unless Arnez Battle has trade value, or Cotchery’s injury is more serious, I can’t see them NEEDING another wide out.

    But, then you look at Tyler Grisham. He’s 5’11 and 185lbs, making him about the same size as Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown, and Emmanuel Sanders. Realistically, the Steelers don’t really need another WR that’s 185 and under 6 feet.

    Iglesias is 6’1 and 205, which is not huge, but it might be considered an improvement size wise.

    I don’t see why for either of these 2 players…
    Dickerson may be a possibility at TE… but not WR.
    Steelers already are loaded in slot reciever types… Brown, Sanders, Ward, Cotchery. Ward is not a wideout IMHO.
